Mole, its going to be a f***ing exciting night for both of us tonight.

:lol: Aye can't wait to see who we draft in the second round.

Watching 7 hours of hoping we don't get fleeced in a Powell trade for me.

Alternatively if DeRozan gets traded my wife will have a legit mental breakdown.

Usually i'd expect similar ridiculous behaviour from our FO, but i get the feeling everything is just being geared around resigning Cousins and trying to get some serviceable wings if we can.

Assuming Cousins resigns i don't expect our summer to be that eventful tbh.

CFlan man. What shithouse nothing are we drafting tonight, man.

I’m thinking it’ll be Knox from Kentucky. He looks good but raw from what I’ve read. Best case scenario Porter Jr or Wendal Carter are there at 9 but unlikely.

Seen Carter drop as far down as 10.

SGA is the guy you should take IMO. I've bought into the hype.

The Ringer have us taking them in their mock. Haven’t a clue about him tbh. Just don’t want Trae Young.

Here in Canada SGA is being hyped as an elite defender, elite pick N roll player, elite shooter and elite at getting to the rim.

Canada also still believes in Andrew Wiggins though.

I've been disappointed in Wiggins tbh, thought he'd be way better than he's shown so far. He get's his 20 points on average efficiency but literally doesn't impact the game outside of that.

Woj spoiled first six picks three hours before the draft. :lol: I’m assuming people don’t want me to post?

All I want is for the Celtics to hijack Doncic/JJJ/Bamba by trading Rozier + Kings pick to Memphis.

Never going to happen, but I can dream.

Memphis want to attach  Parsons to the 4 pick so I’m not sure how you’d flip that contract.

Probably have to attach the MEM pick to it.

I do not understand Bagley being taken #2 at all. Ayton and Bamba could feasibly be preferable to Doncic just because of unmatched pure physical gifts, but Bagley over Doncic makes no sense to me.

I'm familiar with Luka's game and watched him several times. He is already a serious NBA rotation player right now. If he went to a good team, he'd be playing serious minutes in the playoffs the same way that Tatum and Mitchell were this season. I think he will also grow/improve as he adjusts to the NBA style.

It's been reported that everyone else told Sacramento they absolutely don't want to go. Bagley is the only one who was willing to come and work out, said all the right things.

It's a stupid decision, but you have to kinda empathize from a human standpoint.

Isn't Bagley supposed to be really good?  I heard he was really skilled and a ridiculous athlete in transition.

He's really good. Just a lot of question marks fit-wise because he has short arms, can't shoot (yet), and doesn't know how to defend.

Tbf I've read the no defense criticism of Ayton too. :lol:

If anything I've read it's even worse with regards to Ayton.

Looks like Dallas is trading up to 3.

Difference is that Ayton can theoretically defend because he has good lateral footspeed and super long arms. He just has to learns how to.

Bagley doesn't have the physical tools to be a big-man defender at all. If he's going to become a good defender, he needs to defend more like a SF than a C.

Nice, if nothing else Doncic and Dennis Smith Jr should be fun.

Orlando might be f***ed. Desperately need playmaking and the Hawks reach for Trae. Nobody on the board that they need.

I guess they just take Bamba, close their eyes and hope it works out?

These kids are really becoming extra irritating. Just get drafted first and prove you can play before you start making demands like a whiny little princess.

Was just reading how SGA refused to workout for the Cavs and told them he wouldn't play for them, so he didn't want them to pick him.

I mean for goodness sake ... just shut up and go and do a great job, and make something of the team.

This is the entitled generation for sure. Disgraceful stuff in my opinion.

Just realised that Dallas want Cousins, picking Doncic instead of Bamba means they'll go all in on that.

Which means this isn't good for me at all :lol:
